Goodman's 20 points, 12 rebounds too much for UCLA

Written By kolimtiga on Kamis, 19 Februari 2015 | 12.56

Savon Goodman had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Shaquielle McKissic added 14 points and Arizona State held on to beat UCLA 68-66 Wednesday night.

Arizona State (14-12, 6-7 Pac-12) led by six with just over two minutes left, but Norman Powell hit a pair of shots and Isaac Hamilton scored on a drive with 7.9 seconds left to pull the Bruins within 67-66.

Tra Holder hit 1 of 2 free throws and Arizona State escaped with the victory when Hamilton's 3-pointer at the buzzer caromed off the rim.

Holder had 13 points, seven assists and five rebounds for Arizona State, which had a 39-27 advantage on the glass against the Pac-12's best rebounding team. The Sun Devils also outscored the Bruins 36-22 inside.

Powell had 16 points, and Kevon Looney and Bryce Alford added 14 each for the Bruins (16-11, 8-6).

With a little over two weeks left in the regular season, the Bruins and Sun Devils are hoping for a late-season push into the NCAA Tournament.

UCLA is in much better shape, winning five of its past six games since a two-game sweep by the Oregon schools puts its bracket hopes in jeopardy.

Arizona State still has some work to do in an up-and-down season that includes a win over Arizona but also some resume-busting losses.

Powell gave the Bruins a lift early.

He scored 23 points in a win over Oregon on Saturday and proved to be a tough matchup for the Sun Devils, starting with a running hook on the game's opening possession. Powell had 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting by halftime.

The rest of the Bruins were pretty good, too, hitting 14 of 27 shots in the first half.

Goodman and McKissic kept the Sun Devils close.

Goodman hit all six of his shots, including a three-point play on an alley-oop, and had 13 points by halftime. McKissic added 11, helping Arizona State to rally from a 10-point deficit to pull within 36-32 by halftime.



UCLA: Noah Allen was 3 for 18 from 3-point range in Pac-12 games before hitting one from the arc in the first half.

Arizona State: The Sun Devils retired former player James Harden's No. 13 during a halftime ceremony. Now a member of the NBA's Houston Rockets, he played at Arizona State from 2007-09.


UCLA plays at No. 7 Arizona on Saturday. Arizona State hosts USC on Sunday.
